With winter at our doors and the looming prospect of having plenty of time at home, you know it: it's time for that idea, or that manuscript, to come out of the drawer!

If you don't even know where to start, this workshop is for you. Victoria will guide and advise you through the entire timeline of the life of a play: from the first spark of creation to directing or performing your own words on the stage. If you were waiting for a sign to complete that draft, look no further: this is it.
